XDubai unveils the world’s longest urban zipline in Dubai Marina


Dec 10 2017

Taking adventure to a brand new level, XDubai has unveiled the world longest urban zip line in Dubai Marina. XLine redefines the essence of an adrenaline rush, as it is one of the steepest and fastest ziplines in the world, measuring an astonishing 1 kilometre, with a spine-tingling incline of 16 degrees and travelling at an average of 80 kilometres per hour.

The new Superman style harness allows zipliners to channel their inner superhero with an electrifying flight-like experience as they zip from one of the Amwaj towers in JBR, 170 metres in the air, weaving through skyscrapers and across water, down to the terrace of Dubai Marina Mall, landing in close proximity to amazed bystanders.

The XLine follows in the footsteps of the popular original which launched in late 2015 at The Dubai Mall over the iconic Dubai Fountain. Building on the earlier archetype, the new XLine literally goes the distance, doubling in length and offering daring duos the ability to experience it together, swiftly yet safely through two concurrently running ziplines.

With two ziplines running concurrently, XLine can accommodate 16 people per hour with individuals able to take the leap - or zip - with a friend, family member or colleague. Family and friends of those ziplining will have a great vantage point from the Marina Promenade next to Dubai Marina Mall.

XLine will also be open to both visitors and residents of Dubai for a limited time with public bookings open now. Participants experiencing the XLine will be able to share the experience to the world through a helmet-mounted Go-Pro with photos and video delivered via email following the experience.

“We wouldn’t be XDubai if we didn’t push the limits of what is possible,” said Mohammed Javad, General Manager of XDubai. “Following the success of the first XLine, we wanted to step it up more than a notch and importantly, give both residents and visitors to Dubai the opportunity to have a true-to-form XDubai experience. The result is like nothing else – two ziplines - the world’s longest in an urban setting, in one of the world’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.”
